Music Video Friday: Devin Townsend is a wacky guy who's actually a genious. Anyways back in 2006 he released his seventh solo album Synchestra which has some killer songs.

Watch as Devin Townsend rocks out in a graveyard comic dressed in a tight devil costume. This video should make you laugh your ass off!

I was in Illinoise this weekend for a killer festival, but I'm not here to present you a video of the show I was at. The reason I brought this up is because I was staying at my buddy Jame's place (guitarist of Shield Of Wings) and because we were a bunch of Canadians staying at his place, and he saw I had a Strapping Young Lad shirt on, he asked me a question "How do you get a bunch of Canadians to get out of the pool?" I replied "Get out of the pool". This was the masterful joke from the one and only Devin Townsend.
